not currently
though someone could setup a second fate server or instance on the
existing and clients could test a second branch like "testing"
it also could be done without a second fate server but then the
results from the 2 branches would be shown on the same page.
fate clients would need to be changes too, too test both branches

id guess more different/obscure ones, anything not x86 is probably
more likely to have issues
but there also could be issues between x86 32 and 64

overall i think though that until a better framework for testing
exists its best to just push wait and revert. It does very little
harm if 1 out of 1000 commits is of that kind and its just tests that
break, The code itself isnt ever broken
I think its better not to waste time trying to avoid the easy path
